St Kilda | 2019
St Kilda was known as Euro-Yroke ‘the grinding stone place’ by the First Nations People, describing the red brown sandstone found along the picturesque beach. The stone was used to sharpen the edges of stone axes, with handles formed by looping timber bound in rope.
The proposal draws on this history of place, forming a looping bridge that connects the existing boardwalk and Luna Park. Within this lies pools of varying depth that cater to a range of water based activities, reinvigorating the beach and surrounding public realm.
